Just saying Hello

Just saying Hello

It's been a while since I've posted. Just wanted to say hello! It's been 3 months since my COPD diagnosis. My first and so far only exacerbation lasted a while. My doctor changed some meds. I have a new inhaler Anoro Ellipta that seems to work amazingly. He also prescribed Montelukast Sodium. Still doing oxygen therapy. But thing feel good. At 5 foot 7 I used to weigh 135 pounds. Can't seem to get above 126 now. Enjoying my granddaughters high school senior activities. Still exhausted 75 percent of the time but all in all enjoying life.

Thank you Sassy59. My oldest granddaughter will not allow me to sit idle. Says she needs me with her every step of the way. She is 18 and I don't think she realizes I am 61. Lol

Have you been referred to a dietitian? I am on a high protein diet which includes protein supplement drinks.I really find it helps my energy levels. Plus I have managed to regain 7 kgs. Keep an eye on your weight as it can cause problems if you loose to much. Nice to hear from you again.

Will do! I have always been on the thin side with no room for weight loss. Thank you for your advice and support.
